New Orleans Pelicans vs Oklahoma City Thunder

OKC to win by at least 3 points against the Pelicans.

OKC was one of the teams that impressed me the most this season. They play excellent defense and I think they are one of the best equipped teams to slow down Pelicans super star Anthony Davis. They have one of the strongest centers in the league in Adams so Davis won’t get his points easy and will have to work hard for rebounds too.

Pelicans will miss a very important piece in Mirotic alongside Payton. Moore is questionable for this one too.

 

Cleveland Cavaliers vs New York Knicks

2 terrible teams play here but I like the Knicks more.

They started to play better but their good form(4-2 record) was over 1 week away and since then they lost 4 in a row. Teams with 3 or more losses in a row that are favorites on the road are actually pretty good ATS with a winning rate of 57% + since year 2000.

Cavaliers also have a ton of injuries that makes them weak. They miss their best player Love and recently lost another important front court player in Tristan Thompson.
